Antonio Brown was a perennial all-star for the Pittsburgh Steelers during the better part of a decade. Unfortunately, his relationship with the team took a strange turn as he demanded a trade and eventually left for the Oakland Raiders. Eventually, Brown was cut by the Raiders and picked up by the New England Patriots. He only lasted one game with the Pats and now, he is out of work.
Recently, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was on ESPN First Take and he was asked by Stephen A. Smith about Brown's status with the team. Smith was curious as to whether or not the Steelers would ever consider a reunion with the star. While it's not totally off the table, it's certainly not something that's being heavily discussed.
"We have no current business interest at this time," Tomlin said. His answer shouldn't come as too much of a surprise considering the Steelers and AB ended things on bad terms. Sometimes, there are irreconcilable differences, especially with all of the rants Brown launched on his Twitter and Instagram platforms. Despite numerous apologies, it would probably be hard for Ben Roethlisberger to work alongside someone who has besmirched his name on numerous occasions.
Where do you think Brown should go next season?
Antonio Brown Flaunts Impressive Bench Pressing Ability: Watch
Antonio Brown is positioning himself for a comeback.
Antonio Brown has been through quite a bit over these past few months. From arrests to allegations, Brown has been trying to get things under control and start fresh. Over the past few weeks, Brown has been on an apology tour of sorts and has been looking to make amends with everyone he has supposedly done wrong. He has also been working incredibly hard at his craft so that he can get back into a rhythm and maybe force his way back into the NFL.
Today, AB hopped on Twitter and posted a video of himself at the gym. As you can see from the clip below, he is bench pressing 315 pounds. This was immediately after he benched 225 pounds for 15 reps. Brown claims he is stronger than he's ever been in his life which is pretty impressive given the circumstances.
It remains to be seen what will become of Brown's career considering the NFL hasn't wrapped up their investigation into the sexual assault allegations against him. Brown has burnt a lot of bridges although his talent is simply too much for some teams to ignore. With this in mind, he could be a part of some interesting free agency discussions.

Antonio Brown Harshly Dismisses XFL As "Lower-Class Football"
Antonio Brown hasn’t been very kind to the XFL as of late.
Antonio Brown has been one of the most fascinating athletes in the sports world over the last six months or so. He has gotten himself into quite a bit of trouble but now he’s trying to turn his life around and work his way back into the NFL. It remains to be seen whether or not a team will give him a chance although if there is one thing for certain, he won’t be heading to the XFL, anytime soon.
During an interview with The Breakfast Club, Brown spoke out about the league and whether or not he would ever join it. Brown was quite harsh about the level of football and was pretty dismissive in the process. Based on his response, it’s clear he would prefer to play in the NFL.
“I don’t really watch lower-class football … I don’t support XFL, man. If it ain’t the highest level, man, I don’t wanna do it,” Brown said. “I’m not playing XFL … it ain’t even about the money to me, for real. I don’t wanna go chill with 60 dudes every day; guys jealous ’cause AB gettin’ all the touchdowns; guys jealous AB getting all the girls they be wishing about.”
While it’s all well and good that he wants to play in the NFL, it’s all contingent on whether the league wants him. If the NFL turns AB aside, he will have already burned a bridge with the XFL, which could spell trouble.
Antonio Brown Gifts Charlamagne & DJ Envy Chocolate Penises
Antonio Brown joined “The Breakfast Club” for a conversation about Tom Brady, the Raiders, and his career.
Antonio Brown was on The Breakfast Club this morning where he spoke to Charlemagne Tha God, DJ Envy, and Angela Yee about everything that has been going on his life over the last few months. If you’re familiar with Brown, then you know just how much of a controversial figure he’s been. From his beef with JuJu Smith-Schuster to being released from the Oakland Raiders, Brown has been through it all over the last year.
During his interview with The Breakfast Club, Brown admitted that he has been trying to seek therapy and wants to play with an NFL franchise that will value his mental health. He also divulged on his relationship with Tom Brady and how he hopes to play with the quarterback again. Brown says Brady has even been sending Brown texts to encourage him during this trying time.
Perhaps the most bizarre highlight of the interview was when Brown gifted DJ Envy and Charlamagne some chocolate penises. Oddly enough, Envy and Charlamagne seemed to be overly enthused about this development.
For now, Brown seems to be in a positive mood and is hoping to make things right amongst himself and those he has hurt over the last few months. Recently, Brown offered an apology to his former quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger. He also made things right with his baby mother, Chelsie Kyriss.
Needless to say, Brown is making strides to improve himself and if the league takes notice, we could see him back on the football field sooner than later.
Antonio Brown Gives Fans Stern Advice On Dealing With Anger
Antonio Brown says there are three things to remember.
Antonio Brown has been in plenty of debacles over the last year but amazingly, he has been able to come out on the other side with a positive attitude. While this may not have always been the case, Brown is now displaying positivity throughout his social media pages and seems to be content with how things have been going since his arrest in Miami.
Recently, Brown took to his Instagram account where he posted some poignant advice for all of his fans out there. Brown addresses those who are going through a tough time and need some guidance in their period of despair. AB boils his advice down to three words that can help you re-focus and gain a new lease on life.
“APG, Appreciation, Perspective, Gratitude. 3 things to remember if you get pissed off or distracted about anything today think from this perspective it will be better trust. Call God,” Brown said.
Brown seems to be at peace with things right now which is great to see. He appeared to be in a bad spot over the last few months and was in need of help. Now, he is making strides to reconcile with those from his past, including former teammates like Ben Roethlisberger. For now, it remains to be seen if he’ll be able to keep this up and get back in the league.
Antonio Brown Apologizes To Ben Roethlisberger: “I Appreciate You”
“I never realized how good I had it.”
The Antonio Brown redemption tour has been filled with apology after apology, as the former All Pro wide receiver constantly takes one step forward and five steps back. In the past few weeks, Brown has apologized to his former teammates and coaches as well as the Hollywood Florida Police Department. He even posted a friendly photo with his baby mama, who he had recently verbally abused during a disturbing instagram live video.
On Wednesday, AB issued yet another apology – this one directed at Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Brown’s post, featuring a photo of Big Ben patting him on the helmet, includes the following caption:
“Mostly you a little bit of me ! Yee yee !! f got caught up in my emotion with everyone coming after me I really apologize for my actions sincerely man ! It’s never been another connection like what we done in the past decade. I appreciate you. Sincerely AB.”
AB spent his first nine seasons catching passes from Roethlisberger as they became one of the most dangerous QB-WR duos in the league. However, Brown’s issues with the Super Bowl-winning QB resulted in him being traded to the Oakland Raiders – and we all know what happened after that.
The IG apology comes just one week after Brown apologized to the entire Steelers organization during a lengthy interview with 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh. At the time, Brown explained, “I’m forever grateful and indebted to the organization. Mr. Rooney. Mike Tomlin. Kevin Colbert. Ben Roethlisberger. You know I started my career with those guys. A lot of beautiful moments. A lot of amazing things.”
His attempt to get back in the good graces of his former coaches and teammates is surely a ploy to get back in the NFL, but there’s more to his story than the social media arguments and locker room disputes. The 31-year old receiver also has several pending legal issues which will likely deter any NFL teams from signing him until they are resolved.
Antonio Brown’s Lawyer Attempts To Withdraw From Sexual Assault Case
Antonio Brown's case was opened back in September.
Antonio Brown was accused of sexual assault and rape by his former trainer, Britney Taylor. These allegations were brought up by Taylor in September and they came with a civil lawsuit. In addition to this suit, Brown was hit with an internal investigation from the NFL, which hasn't even concluded yet. There have been very few updates on this case, until yesterday, when it was reported by Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic that Brown's lawyer would actually be withdrawing from the case. The paperwork has been filed in Florida State court which means the request is now official.
It remains to be seen how this case is going to play out. If Brown can't find a new lawyer, it's going to be difficult to represent himself. It's important to note that his lawyer's reasoning for filing a motion to withdraw is unknown. There could be a whole plethora of reasons for why he decided to withdraw although we'll probably never know due to confidentiality.
Meanwhile, Brown is looking to get back into the NFL next season. If he loses the suit, his career could very well be over, especially considering everything that has gone down these past few months.

Ever since his arrest in Miami, AB has been living his life drama-free and seems to be doing quite well. The NFL star is making strides to get his mental health right while also working on his burgeoning music career.

AB has been quite firm on his stance that he doesn’t have the disease and in his most recent Instagram post, AB made sure let us know that in 2020, we’re blacklisting CTE.
It remains to be seen what will become of Brown’s football career, moving forward. The NFL has vowed to get him help although they have yet to make a judgment in the investigation against him. For now, the NFL is taking its time and are thinking of a proper punishment. Meanwhile, AB is improving himself to the shoe the league he’s serious about coming back.

Logan Paul Drops Antonio Brown Diss Track "Going Broke"
Logan Paul turns up on Antonio Brown in new diss track, “Going Broke.”
Earlier this year, Antonio Brown revealed that he was willing to go toe-to-toe with Logan Paul in the boxing ring. The two recently came face-to-face at the Maxim Havana Nights Super Bowl Party in Miami and nearly came to blows leading to serious negotiations from multiple promotion companies including DAZN. Now, with the former Pittsburgh Steeler shifting his talents into the music realm, Logan Paul has decided to release a diss track of his own aimed in the direction of Antonio Brown entitled, “Going Broke.”
Logan Paul’s attempt to bait Antonio Brown into a beef on wax was a response to AB’s recently released single “Whole Lotta Money.” With Antonio Brown’s legal woes building up against him and his mental health being investigated, Logan Paul is utilizing the wide receiver’s downfalls as ammunition to question whether if Brown is truly as wealthy as he claims he really his. The YouTube sensation turned celebrity boxer kicked off his diss stating:
“You should have never started with me
Shouts to OBJ, I got real starters with me
And yeah girl said that ain’t nobody harder than me
No you should’ve never started with me
No you shouldn’t, say you ain’t playing games but your head looks like some Tetris
Dropped by your agent and your lawyer why you flexin’?
I’m here to save you, take the blessin’
Cause your career fell apart like One Direction
Frostbite, cold feet, b*tch you lookin’ nervous
Clown sh*t, take a seat, put him in the circus
Locked up you deserve it
I’mma knock your a** out like Vontaze Burfict”
“Going Broke” features an auto-tuned chorus dissing the former wide out’s inability to land on an NFL roster and an additional verse riddled with shots aimed at Antonio Brown. With AB serious about his music career, we might be able to expect a response track in the near future.
Check out Logan Paul’s “Going Broke” Antonio Brown diss track in the video provided below and let us know your thoughts about the song in the comment section below.
Antonio Brown Finally Apologizes To Steelers: "I’m Forever Grateful"
AB opens up about his time in Pittsburgh: "We got more good moments than bad.”
After more than a year of trash-talking Ben Roethlisberger, JuJu Smith-Schuster and the rest of the Pittsburgh Steelers organization, Antonio Brown has finally offered an apology. During a lengthy interview with 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh on Thursday morning, AB addressed all of the "unwanted attention" he caused and said that he is "forever grateful" for his former Steelers teammates and the organization as a whole.
According to Adam Bittner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brown said:
“I apologize to those guys for the distractions. The unwanted attention I probably caused those guys. To the fans and organization. So obviously you want to clear out any baggage or disrespect or unintended attention that was brought on to the organization. You know these guys gave me an opportunity when I was 21 years old, and I’m forever grateful for those guys. To not only have the opportunity to play with those guys but be in so many amazing moments, and we’ve been through so much.
“So I’m forever grateful and indebted to the organization. Mr. Rooney. Mike Tomlin. Kevin Colbert. Ben Roethlisberger. You know I started my career with those guys. A lot of beautiful moments. A lot of amazing things. So it’s not all bad. I just think from an emotional standpoint, when stuff got bad, it just seem bad. But we got more good moments than bad.”
The former All Pro receiver's image has taken a massive hint since he left Pittsburgh, thanks in large part to his countless legal issues, but in recent days he has made an effort to repair his image. For instance, Brown has also apologized to the Hollywood Florida Police Department and even posted a photo with his baby mama, who he had verbally abused during a disturbing instagram live video.
That said, anyone who has been following AB's downfall is well aware that his next post on social media could completely contradict all the good will he is now trying to build up.
